Safe In Their Alabaster Chambers
by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
Safe in their Alabaster Chambers —
Untouched by Morning
And untouched by Noon —
Lie the meek members of the Resurrection —
Rafter of Satin — and Roof of Stone!
Grand go the Years — in the Crescent — above them —
Worlds scoop their Arcs —
And Firmaments — row —
Diadems — drop — and Doges — surrender —
Soundless as dots — on a Disc of Snow —
